H5se12 - Side scan sonar with built-in echosounder


H5se12 - ultra-compact side scan sonar (SSS) with built-in echosounder (ES) . It is installed on Board any vessel, including Autonomous vehicles. Is used to search for sunken objects, monitoring of underwater infrastructures, inspection, fairways and harbors in areas surveying works with depths up to 10 m for SSS or up to 30m for ES.
Small-sized narrow-profile design allows you to place the sonar on board the ship on the rod d=30mm and a minimum depth. Can be installed on a remote-controlled Autonomous unit (AUSV, AHSV).
Ultra-high resolution range (0.5 cm) for object search and target detection. Using a frequency of 1200 kHz, SSS provides real-time high-quality image of the bottom with high resolution and photographic quality in the field of view up to 78m. High frequency ensures the display of small objects in high detail. ES can work simultaneously with SSS and allows you to perform measurements at depths up to 50m. The use of SSS in the measurements allows measurements with instrumental estimation. When using the optional all-round view option, it is possible to operate in the all-round sonar mode from the ice or while the vessel is stationary.

Application areas:

  • survey of the bottom, identification of relief features, various inhomogeneities
  • search for objects on the bottom and in the water column
  • echo-sounding survey
  • echo-sounding survey with instrumental estimation
  • engineering and ecological monitoring


  • easy to transport and store – all sonar in one case
  • wide range of SSS view, high quality images
  • built-in Li-ion battery
  • built-in course-roll-trim sensors
  • long battery life
  • automatic adjustment to shooting conditions
